Baby boy paper bag for LESSology


I found this cute little bear in my stash when I was reorganizing my stash...it was one of those freebies you got with a purchase...and I thought it would be cute to incorporate it on my paper bag for LESSology Challenge #61: Bag Collector

I started with this sturdy kraft paper bag from Kiehl's. I cut patterned papers to fit the bag on both sides and ran them through my Xyron creative station for an even layer of adhesive.

For a pop of colour, I added a remnant piece of felt from my stash and some colourful polka-dotted ribbon. The black cord handles didn't match my colour scheme so I braided some twine to make new handles for the paper bag.

I added some washers both as reinforcement as well as a decorative feature.

I thought it would be fun to have the teddy bear wear a diaper so I enlisted my mother's help to fold a nappy with some remnant fabric. :)

Beary nice gift bag! It never occurred to me to attach a bear to a gift bag but I also have lots of lots of 'doing nothing' stuff animals which now will be used to decorate boxes and gift bags. You always have unique ideas....thanks for sharing them.
